Did you know over 30,000 structures have been built to Passivhaus standard in Europe, with more than 70 projects now either certified or in progress in the UK?
Interest in this highly energy efficient construction style has significantly grown over the past few years and the third Passivhaus Conference, which is due to start on 7th November, is a great platform for finding out more about how the method works and how it can be integrated into your latest project.
What does the conference cover?
If you’re thinking of attending the conference but unsure of whether it will be useful, here is a brief overview of the themes that will be covered.
• planning and procurement
• occupant comfort / measured performance
• cost and benefits
• software, modelling, PHPP
• detailing: thermal bridging, air tightness, specialist products and solutions
• retrofit case studies and feedback
Taking place at the University of Nottingham, the conference is split over two days with day one including talks from leading national and internal speakers, while the second day consists of technical workshops and seminars covering costs, procurement, design and supply chain.
There are also optional visits to a UK school, office and housing project, all certified to Passivhaus standards and within 45 minutes drive of the University.
Is the conference relevant to me?
The conference is aimed at all construction and built environment professionals, so if you’re an architect, planner or builder for example, then the conference is for you and well worth a visit.
